CREST workshop on
Computational Models of Auditory Processing
8-9, July, 2002
ATR (Advanced Telecommunication
2-2-2 Hikaridai, "Keihanna Science City", Kyoto 619-0288
Thank you for your interest and
participation. The workshop was great success. We are looking
forward to seeing you again!
A Japanese research initiative, CREST (Core Research for Evolutionary
Science and Technology) has been funding a project entitled "Auditory
Brain" for a duration of five years to promote research activities
on computational aspects of speech and audio information processing.
A workshop featuring introductions to accomplishments of the project
will be held as a satellite workshop of ICAD'2002, 2-5, July 2002.
Participants of ICAD'2002 are encouraged to participate in this
workshop. The workshop covers the following topics including several
- STRAIGHT: An auditorily motivated speech analysis, modification
and synthesis method.
- Fixed point methods in source information extraction
- Computational models of pitch and aperiodicity perception
- Missing feature principles in auditory perception
- Computational models for talker conversion
- Stabilized wavelet-Mellin transform as a computational theory
of auditory processing.
- ICA as a mathematical abstraction of sound segregation
- Neuronal computation in auditory processing
- Long-term temporal structure in ASR
- Computational models of music understanding
Registration fee for the workshop is free. Please complete
the following form for making registration.
- CMAP-CREST workshop takes place at the same location with
